We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
The automation and provisioning of the environment, as well as the centralized monitoring, have all improved over the years.Provides high-speed network, strong storage features (ZFS), High Availability out of the box, and is Integrated with a large number of products.Exalogic offers integration with other engineered systems, which increases the throughput capability and enables processing of bigger and heavier workloads.Server consolidation. In a cloud architecture, moving the HA VM from one to other is faster. This is because of the InfiniBand network fabric between the compute nodes and storage nodes (ZFS Storage).Scalablility: When we need to upgrade from an eighth-rack to a full-rack, the real downtime is less then an hour.Enterprise high-speed interoperability: With IPoIB we can deliver to other environments, either IP-Ethernet-based or IP-InfiniBand-based protocol, both with minimum bandwidth capacity of 10Gbps, 20Gbps, or 40Gbps, redundantly.

The performance is significantly improved, and the administration is easy because it is a single platform end-to-end.A valuable feature is the Exadata Storage appliance, optimized for database queries.Because it's classified as an engineered system, it's all integrated, it's all supported by one vendor. We don't have to go to multiple vendors for support, it's all integrated under Oracle.

Cons
The solution is prone to disk failures. This needs to improve. Over the past four years we've had to replace about six of them. They've failed almost every three to six months.Middleware application services, such as statistics, data mining, could be better.

If they had an application that centralized the administration, not about the monitoring, but for the configuration, it would be better.I would like to see control domain and zone management via a management console, similar to that of OVM.There are many areas for improvement. For example, better guidance in terms of troubleshooting issues relating to ZFS, as well as better tools/diagnostics for monitoring that specific component, to better identify potential issues. Hardware monitoring via OEM 13.2 is not 100 percent, as Ops Center is still required in some instances.If it had capabilities to integrate really well with DB2 or SQL Server or Hitachi SANs, those sort of things, that would be a real benefit. Right now, it's fully supported only under all Oracle infrastructure.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Pricing and licensing are two very delicate aspects when talking about Oracle, especially engineered systems. The prices are quite high compared with other similar products, so the CapEx analysis and investment return have to be very well studied.To expand the hardware's capability requires a massive investment.Get the price of the license you will need for the middleware that will be running on top of the Exalogic. Otherwise, you can use another middleware solution, as long as it can run on top of Oracle Linux.
